About the Book

According to Dahlmann, the Icelanders were and still are skilled writers and had strong writing habits during their long winters. Any history that does exist of the Norse Kings and their past tragedies, crimes, and acts of valor is virtually entirely owing to this circumstance. The Icelanders, it seems, not only created beautiful writing on their paper or parchment but were also admirably perceptive and eager for accuracy. As a result, they have left us with a collection of narratives known as the Sagas (literally, "Says") that is unmatched among barbarous peoples in terms of both quantity and quality.These ancient Sagas served as the foundation for Snorro Sturluson's History of the Norse Kings, which contains a great deal of poetic fire and faithful sagacity that was used to sort through and adjust the old Sagas. In short, the book deserves to be listed among the greatest histories of all time if it were ever properly edited and provided with accurate maps, chronological summaries, and other supporting materials.The following rough notes of the early Norway Kings are hastily put together based on these sources, with a great deal of assistance from accurate, knowledgeable, and unwearied Dahlmann, 1 the German Professor.

About Author

Thomas Carlyle

Thomas Carlyle was a Scottish essayist, historian, and philosopher who lived from 4 December 1795 to 5 February 1881. Carlyle learned to read from his mother, and arithmetic from his father. Carlyle travelled 100 miles from his home in November 1809, when he was about 14 years old, to attend the University of Edinburgh. John Leslie taught him mathematics, and John Playfair taught him science. He finished his studies in the arts in 1813 and enrolled in a theology study. In addition to founding the London Library, he made a substantial contribution to the National Portrait Galleries' establishment. Victorian literature was significantly affected by Carlyle's inventive writing style. He proposed the Great Man theory, a historical theory that holds that notable people have affected history. His "noble Chivalry of Work" political theory is characterised by medievalism. Carlyle heard abruptly of his wife's unexpected death while still in Scotland. He wrote memoirs of William Wordsworth, Robert Southey, Irving, and Jeffrey.His niece Mary, who served as his amanuensis, overheard him say his last words: "So this is Death-well."
